-organized fringe of radical birthers, the election of a black president doesn't tell us much about the structural barriers that continue to face the vast majority of black citizens. it doesn't tell us much about the narrow arena of electoral arena for black candidates. maybe you've noticed there's not one african-american in the united states senate. we're called 2008 with an open seat race. unpopular wars, a crushing -- a nation that was crashing in terms of the economy and exhausted the with the incumbent george w. bush opened the door wide for a democrat to win. throughout american history, race has been a disqualifier even if favorable, political circumstances. not in 2008. overall, american voters did not -- this is meaningful if imperfect progress. in three days, we'll learn if america's first black president will be re-elected. the conditions are very different this time around. he is the incumbent, the economy is still limping and it may be harder generally to win reelection of our previous 42 presidents. only 16 were elected to two terms. if america doesn't choose president obama again,
had my sister and i and raised us in new york. she could not vote in her home town until she was 40 years old in 1965 but her generation made it possible for me to vote, for me to run for president, for me to sit in rockefeller center on election eve. i owe my children more than i have. she gave me more than she had. tomorrow i like obama but i'll be voting for my mama. thank you for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> an easy choice. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in philadelphia. let me start tonight with this. tomorrow america, this country of ours will be divided. half the country will vote for president obama and keep faith with the current direction. half will vote with varying degrees of anger to depart from it. to who knows in one of the various directions governor romney has offered. with him you need a weather map to know what road he's going to take on any given day. the question looms now of how this country will get together the day after tomorrow. i always think that's important, but it's more important now because o
with the one that brung him. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" starts now. >> thanks, chris, i'm al sharpton. this is a special edition of sunday it sunday "politicsnation." we are coming to you live tonight from democracy plaza from new york's rockefeller center. it'll be our headquarters through election day. we have two days to go. here's where the race stands. new nbc news wall street journal poll just out today shows president obama with 48% of the national vote. mitt romney has 47%. a dead heat. the new york times, 538 blog says if the election were held today, the president would win reelection with 307 electoral votes. mitt romney would get 231. 270 is the magic number needed to winter white house. the times blog gives the president an 85% chance of winning the election. romney has a 15% chance. that's the highest percentage the president has had since october 3rd, the day of the first debate. and as of tonight, more than 29 million people are have already vote pepd but the lines as long as six hours in florida have led to a major development in tha
as the president's people told us did end up being demographics and turnout. latinos continue their embrace of the democrats and the rejection of the republicans. the white share of the vote was 72% which was exactly what plouffe, axelrod and mecino told us it would be. we want to break news here. >> we have mugs. we are excited. i'm sure our viewers are excited. >> on a day of big news, this was breaking. >> this is what we care about. no. we get in to the politics of this, what happened, the demographic break down and quickly say what this means for the country. health care stays. it means paul ryan's budget is essentially irrelevant since they weren't able to get the majority in the senate and maybe more importantly i think latino voters made their voice heard loud and clear to both parties in this election and comprehensive immigration reform of some sort will have to be a priority in the next administration. >> you're absolutely right. the gop has to move to the left on the immigration. latino issues. black and brown voters emerged this year as power brokers saying white people cannot
to "morning joe." with us on set, we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle and national affairs editor for "new york" magazine and analyst john heilemann. and we have a weather story to start with. >> this is the new normal. >> it's unbelievable. >> across the northeast and connecticut last year, we had a hurricane first, and then we had a snowstorm at the end of october. the same thing's happened again. i mean, the fact that people on long island, people on staten island, people across new jersey have no power right now and are having to deal with another nor'easter, this time they're shivering in their homes instead of what we always did in florida which was sweat in our homes. much better. >> in some places there's no place for people to go. it's a devastating situation. we begin this morning with hundreds of thousands of americans remaining without power during an unseasonably cold spell in the northeast. adding to the damage left by hurricane sandy. a nor'easter blew through the east coast yesterday, dumping snow and rain on a region that's barely begun to dig out from sandy. we've got new
of times square, new york city, just getting going. with us on set, msnbc contributor, put that in quotes, it's up for debate what he contributes, mike barnicle, richard haass, chairman of deutsche inc., donny deutsch and cohost of "the cycle," s.e. cupp. it's not really new. >> it's old now. >> you know what i contribute? i contribute some insight into the growing ego mania that is young willie geist. >> yes! >> the 37-year-old sexiest man on earth? >> what? >> oh, wow, we're doing this 40 seconds in, huh? >> "people" magazine. >> getting it out of the way. there he is. willie geist listed as the sexiest 37-year-old man in america. >> i'm titillated. >> it's not just me saying it anymore, it's documented. >> where am i? am i on the right show? >> later today -- >> this is why i got up early? >> later this morning, we are going to have the new editor of "people" magazine here, helen keller. >> oh! >> that's cruel. >> ba dumb bum. >> long setup. way to go. donny's on there, too. >> donny's on the list, too. >> what was it, "50 shades of grey." >> i was in the decaying category. sexy and de
. >> what about the scare techniques that mitt romney is using and the president calling him out on it and the recession talk? >> there is the recession talk, but actually i thought more outrageous was the idea that if the president gets reelected, we're going to be back to default and this idea of a government shutdown as if it is the president who thinks that defaulting on america's debt or shutting down the government is a good idea. those are the republican tactics. you know, i'm amazed how much and how apparently confident mitt romney can be in projecting republican positions on to this president and accusing him of being responsible for everything the republicans want to do. it is just not the case. he knows that. republicans know that. but it is something that he seems to think he can spin to voters right now. >> i don't know if job numbers are going to motivate people to get out and vote, but certainly whoever the next president is, what kind of an economy, david, would you say that president would be inheriting? >> well, we still have a lot of work to do. it took 32 year
at home for staying with us for the next hour. at almost exactly this point in the presidential race of 1956, on october 29th, 1956, with the election that year coming up just a week later, israel invaded egypt. and they did it with the secret support of two major u.s. allies. france and england. it was a fight over control of the suez canal. the american president at that time, in 1956, was, of course, dwight eisenhower. republican. he was running for re-election against the democratic candidate that year, adlai stevenson. talk about an october surprise. that year it was eight days before election day. both candidates are forced to deal with an unexpected and genuine giant foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any pha
've got chuck todd joining us and howard fineman. i have to give you some anecdotal information which has given me good information. i have a brother charlie who always votes for the winner. he called me an hour ago and said it's obama. because that's who he's going to vote for. don't laugh, chuck. when you get an absolute provable leading indicator you will never let it go either. so i've got one. i've looked at all the numbers today. all the numbers seem to point to a mild victory for obama. none seem to point for a victory for romney. what do you know so far? >> i can tell you the body language of the campaign, talking to the two campaigns. the obama folks don't think they're trailing in a single battleground state and this is the day before the election. that's not to say they think they win every one of the nine battlegrounds if you include north carolina in that larger nine. that's how confident they are. that's how much they believe that they have done enough of what i would call the building the flood walls, if you will, with the early vote and the absentee. and what their turn in

"the rachel maddow show" begins right now. great work last night. >> thank you. you look as fresh as a daisy. i feel like i've been run over by a truck. you look ten years younger than you did yesterday. >> my key, forget what sleep is all about and it kind of wears on you. >> i hear you. thanks, man, appreciate it. and thanks to you for staying with us this hour. uh, that happened! that really happened. we are not going to have a supreme court that will overturn roe versus wade. there will be no more antonin scalias and samuel aleatos added to this court. we're not going to repeal health reform. nobody is going to kill medicare and make old people in this generation or any other generation fight it out on the open market to try to get health insurance. we are not going to do that. we are not going to give

). is and good president? he brought us through clean four years of scandalless government. you have the weekend to think about it and then vote like your country depends on it, because it does. and that's "hardball" for now. join me sunday night at 5:00 and 7:00 for a special "hardball" with vice president joe biden. "politicsnation" starts right now with al sharpton. >>> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. four days until election day. the real clear politics shows president obama with 47.4% in national polls, mitt romney has 47.3% the new york times 538 blog says that if the election were held today, the president would win 303 electoral votes and romney would win 235. 270 are needed to win the white house. the times blog gives the president an 81% chance of winning the election. romney has a 19% chance. and as of tonight, 25 million people have already voted but long lines are creating a serious situation in some parts of florida. yes, florida all over again. some people are waiting three hours or more to vote and we will be asking why governor rick scott in florida is refusing t
the largest block of senate women in u.s. history. and the house stays in republican hands. the fiscal cliff looming for congress. is speaker boehner ready to make a deal with the president and democrats? can the country afford another missed opportunity? good morning from new york city. it is the day after, wednesday, november 7, 2012. we have a special two-hour edition of "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. ahead this morning, senator elect angus king of maine. who he will kau can cuss with. maggie hassan of new hampshire. new york congressman steve israel as well as my man that i like to talk about in the future of the republican party, mike murphy. righto my first reads. it took president obama exactly 12 minutes longer to win his second term than a first one. we called the 2000 race at 11:00. this time at 11:12 p.m. we're not even 12 hours removed from that moment yet and it's clear that the second obama term will face enormous challenges in trying to resolve the country's if iscal future and create a governing coalition to make that happen in washington but, first, let's look at how t
strategist. it's great to have you all here. i know it's been a long night for so many of us. we still have so much to talk about. ron, i want to start with you. the fact the president won this and did so with the decisive and clean victory. that can't be questioned. the battleground states coming through really especially in ohio. when we break down the numbers and show latinos that showed up, the younger votes that showed up for the president. everybody that came out, was it romney's to lose because the republican party wasn't able to coalesce women and minorities to say we have a candidate for you to choose. >> absolutely. i think that clearly he was pushed too far to the right. it didn't work. but i think the economy at the end of the day was the real issue. and that was obama's to own. he grabbed the issue of the middle class. he owned it. romney made mistake after mistake on that front. the 47% comment. i mean, any number of issues there. and the latino voters, the young women voters. these are people who are very concerned about the future of their jobs, of income growth of the middl
? >> law enforcement and multiple u.s. paula broadwell, his biographer were indicative of an extramarital affair. . >> really? e-mail? all they had to do to have america's general is to log on to his e-mail? any way we can intrigue that little sound bite up a bit? multiple law enforcement officials tell us e-mails between him and paula broadwell, his biographer were indicative of an extramarital affair. >> how exciting. >> good morning. it is tuesday, november 13th. welcome to "morning joe." with us onset, we have national affairs editor for new york magazine and msnbc political analyst john heilemann. msnbc political analyst mark haleprin, and the author of a new book "thomas jefferson: the art of power," jon meacham. >> who never e-mailed anyone. >> are you sure? >> actually, no. >> best-selling, that thing skyrocketed -- >> the fbi is looking into monticello e-mail. >> thomas jefferson, the randy bugger. >> by the way, heilemann is the national affairs writer for -- >> yes. >> this is going to be a long show. >> by the way -- >> growth industry. >> in the line of booty, "new york daily
now. >> on a personal note, i want to say one thing about this crisis. as for myself and those of us who work here on this show, we have been very lucky and very blessed this week as this disaster has unfolded in the communities we all live in. everyone on our staff is safe. nobody has been injured. our families are okay. a lot of us have property damage. almost all of us have been living out of suitcases, but we are all safe and that's what's important. i want to thank everybody who has been asking, you're all nice. i want to show you one thing though. look at this video. this was taken this morning by our friend jessica rodriguez who is a producer on this show. most of these nights, she would be responsible for making sure this video made it on air, but today she was at home in new york on long island because this is the street where jessica lives. this is what her neighborhood looks like as of today. four days after the storm made landfall. she was at home today working to assess the damage, clean up her flood-damaged home and help her neighbors. while she was at home, a new york
. >> to get us on track to a balanced budget, that's going to take some real work. to get that done it going to require something in washington that's spoken about but not done and it's something i have to do. i've got to be able to reach across the aisle and get good republicans and democrats to work together. >> meanwhile, we've got new nbc news marist polls and they all show a tightening race. the president leads in the three that released today. in iowa, president obama maintains a lead. six-point lead over mitt romney. that is down from eight two weeks ago. in wisconsin, romney has cut the president's lead in half from the last time we were there. he trails by three points, well within the margin of error. and then there's new hampshire which is best to be called a dead heat. the president is 49%, romney 47%. by the way, new hampshire is mitt romney's final stop before election day. director of the marist poll joins me now. lee, let's start with iowa, as you might be already aware of. the romney campaign disputes the size of the lead that we have for the president there. they believe th
sordidly delicious not to have us spending, us in the immediate yashgs spending some time figuring out what in the heck was going on here. i do have to say i really think there are a lot of important questions to be dealt with at the news conference beyond the petraeus matter. there's not a lot that the president can say or add to it. i know there's going to be some questions, but, please, can't we drill down on the fiscal cliff which is really a lot more important for the country? >> one thing, though, and, you know, with petraeus back on the schedule to testify again it's closed but hogan, the white house has stayed largely out of the petraeus fray and our own chuck todd saying on his show this morning that the obama administration doesn't really see petraeus as their guy. he served in multiple administrations has the backing of a lot of republicans but with him now testifying before the senate intelligence committee tomorrow is this where the white house could start to feel more the heat? >> absolutely. i mean, look, he was somebody else's pick but he did serve as somewhat of a sense of
start tonight with this. here is my deal tonight. i want you watching us here all through the night but before you get settled, settle something really important. vote. get out there, get to the polls, and cast your ballot. then come back here, get some pizza or whatever you like for happy food and stick with us all night. i love election night. it's crisp, it's true, it separates the talk from the reality, it's compelling, it's dramatic, and nothing is better than a good concession speech. nothing is more exciting than getting that big checkmark next to the face that tells you the deed is done. tonight i urge my fellow voters to get ready, fasten your seat belts, say a prayer for our country and let's see who's got it and who doesn't. who is going to lead us deeper into the 21st century and who is heading for the sidelines. we've got a great lineup of our top people tonight. the first of our "hardball" all-stars nbc political director chuck todd and "the huffington post's" howard fineman. of course, what am i going to say? here we are. this is one of those nights you don't need a s
. >> good to have you with us tonight. this is the report we've all been waiting for. the exienl jobs report before the election is now out and it is all good news for the obama supporters. the united states added 171,000 jobs last month. expectations were around 125,000 new jobs. the unemployment rate is up .1% of a point to 7.9%. the reason behind the slight uptick is more americans joined the work force. this of course is good news. it makes october 184,000 jobs were added to the private sector. numbers for august and september were revised upward. the job numbers helped president obama make the case about the improving economy. >> in 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. today our businesses have created 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we hired that companies hired more workers in october than any time in the last eight months. >> with only four days left on the campaign trail, the candidates were all over the crucial state of ohio. president obama made three different stops today in that state. first here in hilliard ohio
us about bronco bamma from abigail in ft. collins, colorado. take it away. >> i'm tired -- i'm tired of bronco bamma and mitt romney. >> that's why you're crying? oh, it will be over soon, abby. okay? the election will be over soon, okay? >> okay. >> oh. >>> i tell you what, you know, my mom, christie, used to have an expression. joey, if there's something bad, something goodwill come. and i want to tell you what makes me so proud. in moments of crisis, democrats and republicans always came together. i've got to tell you, it was reassuring to be on those calls. i really mean this. it was reassuring. that's how it's supposed to work. we always work better in america when we work together and everyone's in on the deal. and i tell you -- >> that's one way to look at it. good morning. it's friday, november 2nd. welcome to "morning joe." it's been a long week. with us on set, msnbc and "time" magazine senior political analyst, mark halperin. national affairs editor for "new york" magazine and msnbc political analyst, john heilemann and pulitzer prize-winning historian, jon meacham. good t
of absorbing this information is the next great question of politics of the american right. joining us is barney frank ranking member of the financial services committee. thaw for being here. >> thank you. >> since tuesday, john boehner has suggested what we need to do fiscally for the country and what we should expect to happen in washington is mitt romney's tax plan. >> the problem with that, i don't know what it is, there's a third question, it would be a mistake to assume mitt romney having said it a morning ago still supports it. h his public policy positions came with not good after 30 days. romney himself didn't say what it was. he said in a debate, this is incredible. we'll limit deductions. pick a number. what an extraordinary thing for a presidential candidate to say pick a number. then he said $25,000, we would limit reductions to $25,000. in our home state of massachusetts, if you buy a house, you're paying more than that in your mortgage interest the first year. $2500 is not excessive today with house prices. that takes away any middle class deductions for homeownership an
springsteen. to all the artists who joined us tonight, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. >> we have been jamming the lines. the folks at the red cross, if you couldn't get through, they will be at it all night. keep calling. >> jersey strong, just keep your heart in it. we're coming back. new york, jersey, all the affected areas, you guys have been generous. >> good night, everybody. >>> it is a real privilege to be able to do this show live just after the nbcuniversal telethon. thank you for staying with us. i want to say a personal thing. as for myself and those of us who work here on this show, we have been very lucky and very blessed this week as this disaster has unfolded in the communities we all live in. everyone on our staff is safe. nobody has been injured. our families are okay. a lot of us have property damage. almost all of us have been living out of suitcases, but we are all safe and that's what's important. i want to thank everybody who has been asking, you're all nice. i want to show you one thing though. look at this video. this was taken this morning by our friend j
with homeland security and the rest and one of the principals says, do you want us working with con ed? we usually don't do this? he says to leon, the secretary of defense, can you get generators in to con ed? let's get this up and running. he just cuts through. he makes a decision and he stands by what he does. in contrast to governor romney, you never know where he is. this guy makes a decision, chris. as i said it before, he has a backbone like a ramrod. he stands by what he says, and he lives by it. >> the way he chose to go after bin laden, the decision to rescue the auto industry. when he makes those decisions, everybody else sees cool on the outside. what can you see? >> i see a guy who starts off and the questions he asks are about how this can affect real people. not a joke. it's all straight. here's the deal. on the automobile rescue, he said, how can you let an iconic industry go under? what does that say about the country? there's a million people going to lose their jobs. so the question was, he didn't think it was better, but how could you not take the chance? >> bipartisan g
